Midi Magic……

There’s something ladylike in the air this Summer.  It could be the Middleton effect or a movement away from the club kids neon –  but we are all going girlie.  The coolest fashion piece out there right now is the modest demure Midi. Say bye bye to mini’s and might trip over them maxi’s – the hottest length is just below the knee. It’s all about the ankle …….so nude courts, t bars or  block heels are perfect- keep them simple to lengthen the leg. Go for ballet pumps if you are tall. Wear your midi high waisted with a crop top for a modern feel, with sleek vests for casual cool or sheer shirts for meet the parents perfect…….

Sleeveless Cool

Sleeveless shirts are the new casual cool. The simple clean lines in elegant white, cool grey or pretty pastels,  show off just enough skin to be sexy, relax the ‘pristine’ effect of a shirt and are perfect to throw over jeans in the warm Summer months. You can even wear long styles alone over a bikini -a chic alternative to the neon or beachy brights.

Pinafore Dresses

Cool and VERY easy to wear –  the Pinafore dress is back!

Last seen in the 90’s – you’ll find more variety with the 2013 version.  Back then, a chic grey pinnie over a black tshirt was the epitome of cool. This time around its all about mixing it up. While black and navy totally rock – colour is where it starts to get fun.

So simple to style: do Rachel from Friends with a classic short tee underneath, or pair with a crisp white shirt for preppy cool. You could also go Kate Moss on a night out with a sparkly corset underneath…..

Dress up or down – this look is equally perfect over a bikini on holiday or a vest at home.

Get your Pinnie on!
